While talking to fellow Node.js enthusiasts in San Francisco for Node Summit this week, we asked what seems like a simple question: "What is Node?" We got answers ranging from the basic but technical to the detailed but metaphorical, and provided by a wide range of experts from companies of all sizes working in a number of different fields. Going to show that through the power of simplicity, Node.js promises a wealth of opportunity.
